Rushmore review

Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) is a bizarre and active 15 year old who studies in Rushmore who has joined almost every extracurricular activity. Herman Blume (Bill Murray) is a rich businessman who befriends Max. Both fall for a widowed teacher named Rosemary Cross (Olivia Williams). Max boasts to everyone that his father is neurosurgeon but is in fact a barber. Dirk (Mason Gamble), a friend of Max, divulges the affair of Herman to him. Both Max and Herman ruin each others lives. Max helps out his father in cutting people’s hair. He then creates another play with a new found female friend.

It had a fabulous script with the following quotes from the movie: Herman – “Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone.” “Kids don't like it when their parents get div...

Better after seeing it a couple times

The first time I saw this movie I didn't like it. In fact I thought it was really quite boring, and it didn't really speak to me. The one thing is that even though I didn't enjoy the movie, I didn't exactly write it off as a movie I would never watch again. A few of my friends had been big fans of the movie and they convinced me to watch it again, after watching it a few more times I started to see what they saw in some of the humor behind it. While its not my favorite movie in the world, it does have some merit. Bill Murray does a great job, and Jason Schwartzman really starts to grow on you a bit.. the reason I didn't really like it the first time was that he was still a new actor and I don't think that he really came off as being believable. I came to like him more in his later films. ...

The Rushmore Academy Flyers

This is probably my all time favorite movie. Jason Schwartzman was great as Max Fischer, the over achieving extracurricular activity kid who befriends Bill Murray's character, falls in love with a teacher, who has a fling with Murry's character who fights with Max who brings everyone together at the end to see his play.

The writing is great and even better after multiple viewings. I take offense to Alex's comment that "if you like Napoleon Dynamite, go for this" because this has a story with high points and low points and like I said earlier is written way better than Napoleon Dynamite. They aren't even in the same league in my opinon.

Wes Anderson has a style all his own with humor that is dry and subtle but it grows on you. Also check out The Royal Tenenbaums.
